Insta360 unveils AI-powered 8K action camera – and GoPro should be worried

The action camera market isn’t a two-horse race between GoPro and DJI – Insta360 is also a big player, especially with its latest offering, the Ace Pro. We’ve already had a good time with the 8K shooter, and you can find out more in our Insta360 Ace Pro hands-on review. It has unparalleled features that potentially make it one of the best action cameras ever made.

Of course, it’s 8K video recording that takes center stage – that’s something neither the GoPro Hero 12 Black nor the DJI Osmo Action 4 can do, but the Ace Pro offers much more than that. high resolution video.

It has essentially the same 1/1.3-inch sensor as the Osmo Action 4, which is larger than that of the Hero 12 Black, and takes 48 MP photos in raw JPEG or DNG format. If you don’t need 8K video – which will be available via a firmware update upon release – then the 4K video feature set is very solid, shooting up to 120fps.
